10E2486: Hugh's War On Waste

This guy Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstal is a British chef/turnedfarmer/turnedmostlyvegetarian. Anyway - he rails against food idiocy in many forms. He did a great thing on fish bycatch a few years ago - even got some EU laws changed.

His new one War On Waste focuses on supermarkets and home food waste (related to recycling a few ways). First episode is an hour so brew a cuppa. We know some of this but seeing it (esp at the sharp end at the farms) is pretty insane...

Pops has an expression, "Americans are the only people on earth that refrigerate their garbage for 2 weeks before throwing it away..." Many western countries guilty of this in fact - but it was not always this way... Happy Monday!
